Center for Women 
receives $195,000 

PR — The Carnegie Corpora- 
tion of New York announced on 
July 25 a granl of $195,000 lo 
Wellesley College for the es- 
tablishment of a new Center for 
the Study of Women in Higher 
Education and the Professions. 

Jointly sponsored by the 
Federation of Organizations for 
Professional Women and 
Wellesley College, the Center will 
be an independent institute 
devoted to improving women's 
education and professional oppor- 

President Barbara Newell 
staled that, "(he activities of the 
Center will provide a unique op- 
portunity for us to study women's 
academic and professional needs, 
and from the results of this 
research, we can develop effective 
programs for overcoming 
obstacles women face in their 
career aspirations and choices." 

The primary thrust of the 
Center will be: 

— lo collect and disseminate 
slatistical data from studies 
carried out around the world on 
women's education, work, and 

— to sponsor conferences and 
workshops led by the College's 
faculty and visiting scholars. 

— lo use the College as a 
laboratory where new theories of 
education and research findings 
can be tested. 

— to work in conjunction with 
other women's colleges to

WBS, Wclleslcy's AM radio 
station, in the name of Wellesley 
College, has filed an application 
for an FM license with the FCC. 
Senate authorization of the funds 
for the station is needed before the 
application can be implemented. 

According to Senate treasurer 
Ann Connolly, WBS was able to 
apply for the license without a 
promise of Senate funding, but 
Senate must decide at its October 
meeting if it will fund the station's 

In 197I, Senate initially 
authorized a SI0.000 plan to 
finance the establishment 
of an FM radio station. But 
since the plan met loo many 
obstacles lo be implemented, 
before June, 1974. the balance of 
this fund, approximately $9,600, 
had to be returned to a Senate 

This was in accordance with 
Senate guidelines which specify 
that unused funds must be re- 
approved after three years, to in- 
sure continued student approval 
of student activity funded pro- 

Senate will hold debates to 
determine if there is enough in- 
terest for a Wellesley College FM 
radio station. 

WBS applied for a Class D 
educational FM license. With this 
license, the station will have an 
operating potential of I0 watts. 
The coverage of the station will 
extend lo around a five-mile 
radius. The station would be 
assigned lo 9 1. 5 FM. 

I f Senate approves the funds for 
the station and no difficulties arise 
with obtaining the license, WBS 
will be on the FM band by 
February of 1 975. Construction of 
the necessary FM transmitter and 
antenna, to be located in Galen 
Stone Tower, would be under- 
taken during the January term. 

WBS General manager Lesley 
Tanaka sees the FM addition as 
necessary "to WBS's existence as 
a meaningful activity and ability 
to offer a viable means of com- 
munication." The quality of 
sound offered by FM has led to a 
decreased popularity of the AM 
band. Also, an FM station could 
provide a valuable chance for 
students interested in mass com- 
munications to gain experience in 

An FM frequency would also 
give the station a wider range of 
broadcast area. 

The push for the FM license has 
resulted in a reorganization of 
the WBS slaff. Programs arc now 
underway lo provide better train- 
ing of the station's staff. Also, the 
news department, using an 
Associated Press wire service, is 

Other proposed program ad- 
ditions include: coverage of cam- 
pus lectures, a wider variety of 
music programs, off-campus 
specials, and special broadcasts 
such as the airing of the required 

Music I03 listening. 

This year's staff includes: 
Lesley Tanaka, general manager; 
Frank Kampman, special consul- 
tant; Mclanic Ingalls, program 
director; Liz Thomas, chief 
engineer; Rachel Ritchie, music 
director; Lucy Hinkley, chief an- 
nouncer; Mary Konsoulis. news 
director; Mary Wood, publicity 
director; Judy de Barany, finance 
manager; and Nikki Baker, assis- 
tant news director. Volunteers are 

still needed for every area of the 
station's operation. 

WBS expects to maintain its 
AM facilities, primarily as a 
training place for potential FM 
announcers. The additional cost 
of operating the AM facilities 
along with the FM would be 
minimal according to Ms. 

WBS is owned and operated by 
Wellesley College students, with 
facilities located in Alumnae Hall.

Junior Show, Sept. 27, 28. 

By Margaret Draper '77 

The purchase of texts and 
supplies from Hathaway House 
Book Store was overly com- 
plicated once again this year. 

The beginning of each new term 
brings complaints about long lines 
at ihe bookstore and unavailable 
texts. In order to get an accurate 
idea of exactly what action is be- 
ing taken to improve the situation, 
this reporter interviewed Ms. 
Susan Fcdo, Co-ordinalor of Stu- 
dent Services and Ms. Newall's 
representative on the Hathaway 
House Board. 

According to Ms. Fedo, the 
main problem is the lack of ade- 
quate space for a bookstore on 
campus. Hathaway House has 
always been interested in moving 
their textbook department from 
their main store; before this year, 
they set up a temporary branch in 
the Well during September and 
Februttry. The establishment of 
the Child Study Center forced the 
store to move to Mary Hcmenway 
Hall. Neither ol these places is 
totally adequate, according to Ms. 
Fedo. but will have lo suffice until 
more space on campus becomes 
available. II was Ms. Fcdo's idea 
to have Hathaway also set up a 
supply store located in the old 
Book Exchange arcu in Schneider. 

When asked about possible 
alternatives to the college's affilia- 

tion with Hathaway House, Ms. 
Fedo staled, "It's just too expen- 
sive for the college to run its own 
bookstore ... Most every college 
hires a company." 

Suzanne McTigue, last year's 
College Government President, 
looked into the possibility of the 
Harvard Coop establishing a 
branch on campus. The same 
problem of space which has 
prevented Hathaway House from 
moving permanently on campus 
discouraged the representative of 

the Coop. 

Also, Ms. Fedo said that the 
Coop's MIT and Harvard 
Medical School branches are not 
profitable, making them hesitant 
lo start another here. 

A solution to the bookstore 
problem can not be anticipated 
unlil the completion of the library 
and Science Center; that is the 
earliest lime when new space is 
scheduled to become available. 
Until then, students will have to 
stand the long lines at the begin- 
ning of euch term. 

classification of Custodian and to 
revise some custodial work 

When these changes were plac- 
ed in effect on May 1 3, the wage 
rates of the former Matrons and 
Lead Matrons were increased to 
the higher Custodian rate. Objec- 
tions by the Union and many of 
the employees affected took the 
forms of complaints to the United 
States Department of Labor, a 
suit in the Federal District Court 
and two grievances referred by the 
Union to arbitration, as well as 
picketing the College from mid- 
May through Commencement. 

The settlement, which covers all 
facets of the complex dispute, was 
arrived at through extensive 
negotiations and was ratified by 
the Union membership on 
September 9. 

These are the key elements of 
the settlement: 

— Acceptance by the Union 
and employees of the reclassifica- 
tion of all Matrons and Lead 
Matrons as Custodians with a 
single job description and the 
abolition of the Matron and Lead 
Matron classifications. 

— Assurances by the College 
that no Custodian will be expected 

Act. This decree will include the 
stipulation that there is no admis- 
sion by the College or the Union 
or finding by the Court of any 
violation of the Equal Pay Act by 
the College or the Union. 

— Withdrawal by the Union of 
the two pending greivances con- 
cerning this matter. 

— The settlement agreement 
concludes all aspects of the dis- 
pute with respect to Matrons, 
Lead Matron and Custodians and 
will not constitute a precedent for 
any other case. 

The College is pleased that this 
difficult problem has finally been 
resolved. There have been honest 
differences concerning a series of 
legal and contractual claims. 
These differences have been settl- 
ed by rational and constructive 
discussions with Union and 
employee representatives.

1 Letters to the Editor 

Reexamination of honor 

system exposes 
priorities of students 

Honor has become an "issue" at Wellesley College. That 
"honor" can be labeled an "issue" and discussed in terms of 
its merits and advantages is indicative, in and of itself, of 
the way in which students perceive of their moral duty to 
the College community. 

Senate has been discussing honor as though it were a 
commodity in short supply. 

The name for these deliberations on honor, etc. is found 
somewhere in the vocabulary of situational ethics; in the 
vernacular: score when you can. General Judiciary has been 
grappling with the reality of situational ethics on campus 
for some time now. Few conclusions and many platitudes 
later, Wellesley has a booklet detailing all of the campus 
laws, and an honor pledge which lies in abeyance, waiting 
lor a decision on its fate. 

The honor pledge was scheduled to be distributed during 
Registration Week along with the General Judiciary 
booklet. But there are serious questions in the minds of the 
Honor Code Committee as to whether these pledges should 
be mandatory. Can College Government force students to 
sign an honor pledge? Would it really make any difference 
in the end? If someone is going to cheat on an exam or steal 
a library book, is a pledge going to have any effect on them? 

Answer: Maybe. 

If honor pledges are available for voluntary student 
signatures at the beginning of the semester, students will 
have the opportunity to affirm for themselves their belief in 
the standards embodied in the honor principle. 

The student will retain, as a result of her consciously 
signing the honor pledge, a lasting impression of her duties 
to the College community. 

A Middle-Range Honesty 

An honor system, one which works, is an essential com- 
ponent of our community. Something is wrong with the 
community and the honor code when they must be discuss- 
ed explicitly. 

Something is wrong when our community values of per- 
sonal integrity, academic exploration and achievement, and 
cooperative living must be reexamined and reasserted. 

One response to this situation has come from certain 
members of the Honor Code committee, who feel that the 
code is an all-or-nothing proposition. If we cannot function 
in a system of total trust and limitless discretion, then, ac- 
cording to this group, we must give up our honor system 
and return to a more rigid system of controls. They reject 
the middle-range approaches to the problem. 

Instead of fully proctored exams or fully open exams, 
certain middle-range procedures can be instituted in an 
attempt to prevent at least some of the cheating during 
exam week. The library could institute a system of checking 
books and packages at the exit, or install a turnstile. These 
measures do indicate that the honor system breaks down at 
certain points, but it does not mean that we must abandon 
the entire concept of honor at Wellesley. 

True, any measures that the College takes to shore up its 
ailing honor system will be flaunted or circumvented 
Someone will always get away with violations of the code 
But the middle-range solutions to the problems of exam dis- 
honesty and library thefts could deter the borderline stu- 
dent, the student who would think twice and then decide 
against dishonesty if even a symbolic deterent (the pledge) 
were on her mind. ret 

A Second Chance 

The honor code should not, in principle, have to be 
debated in a public forum. How can we work to return the 
honor code to its position of respected anonymity? In recent, 
years, ignorance and confusion about the elements of the 
honors code have necessitated open discussion. The General 
Judiciary handbook should clarify some of the questions 
which have been raised. 

But we can go farther to insure a more universal respect 
of our honor code and system. Signing a pledge card, volun- 
tarily at the beginning of each school year or semester 
would make a lasting impression on most students' con- 

Creating the awareness of the existence and importance 
of the honor code is essential, if we are to insure the preser- 
vation of the principles under which we have allegedly been 
laboring for one hundred years. 

SAR seeks "lobby-ists" for 
Hostessing applicants 


This year student volunteers for 
the Office of Admission will be 
working under the auspices of a 
newly formed organization, the 
Student Admission Represen- 
tatives (SAR). Busy coordinating 
the various activities of the group 
is a "iriumfeminalc" consisting of 
Marsha Bristow '75, AnncGroton 
•76, and Sandy Peddic "76. 
Volunteers have two major op- 
tions: 1) talking to prospective 
students and their parents in the 
Admission Office lobby in Green 
Hall, and/or 2) housing and 
hostessing sub-freshmen over- 
night. If you've forgotten how it 
felt to be a bewildered high school 
senior, these encounters can be 
remarkably reminiscent! SAR's 
stationed in the lobby try to calm 
student and parental fears while 
answering questions about 
Wellesley; their main purpose is 
to create a relaxed and friendly at- 
mosphere while students wuit for 
lours or interviews. Overnight 
hostesses introduce applicants to 
the rigors of dormitory living, 
helping them through such 
traumatic experiences as three 
meals in a Wellesley dining room, 
or a romp through ancient Greece 
in Miss Marvin's Art 100 lecture. 

Those interested in being 
volunteer "lobby-ists." (minimum 
of one hour per week) shouldcon- 
tact Marsha Bristow in Claflin. 
Those willing to donate a little 
time and a spare mattress about 
once a month should call Sandy 

Pcddie in Tower Court East. 

Life in the Office of Admission 
is never dull. We invite all good- 
hearted students to participate in 
the challenging, rewarding ex- 
perience of SAR.

Simple joys 
Melt away 

To the Editor: 

I am writing concerning the 
noticeable absence of barrel ice 
cream this year. I realize that 
there are many more important 
and pressing issues at Wellesley; 
and (hat in comparison, icecream 
seems trivial. However, it is my 
opinion that there arc really very 
few simple joys in dormitory life 
here; and I think that ice cream, 
especially "make your own sun- 
dae" nights, was one of those sim- 
ple joys of life. It was a real disap- 
pointment to come down to dinner 
the first night ice cream was listed 
on the menu and find instead of a 
"scrvc-yourself" method, a "you- 
are-served — a-minute-squarc- 
wrapped-in-papcr" method. 
Although this may be an ice 
cream of higher quality, it usually 
melts before I get to it; and 
although most of us try to exercise 
self-control in regard to food, I do 
not like this forced self-control in 
regard to ice cream.

New evaluation form 
widens student input 

Reprinted from Wellesley Alum- 
nae Magazine. Summer 1974, 
Volume 58, Number 4. 

An evaluation form entitled, 
"Student Evaluation of Teaching 
Effectiveness" has been in use 
since 1970. The questionnaire 
focuses on the effectiveness of the 
individual instructor and the 
answers given by the students 
have been most useful for pur- 
poses of reappointment and 
promotion. Last year, as an ex- 
periment, the Office of 
Educational Research and 
Development devised a new- 
questionnaire to be used along 
wiih the old one. It is designed to 
examine the effectiveness of the 
course itself, with less emphasis 
on the personality of the instruc- 
tor. The new questionnaire has 
two purposes: to help the instruc- 
tor come to his or her own con- 
clusions as to how well the subject 
matter of a course is coming 
across to the students, and to 
allow the institution as a whole to 
gather knowledge about the effec- 
tiveness of its academic program. 
Faculty members were invited to 
inspect a proposed list of 
questions, to comment upon them 
and to participate in use of the ex- 
perimental questionnaire. Sixty- 
six faculty members agreed to 
participate. Although individual 
faculty members, and some 
departments, already devise their 
own questionnaires, it was felt 
that a questionnaire emanating 
from one central source would 
have several advantages. The ex- 
perimental form will be revised 
before it is used again, and there is 
a possibility that the new andthe 
old form may be given 
simultaneously to all students, 
then separated for purposes of 
data processing. Like virtually 
every decision involving 
curriculum at Wellesley, this one 
will have to be authorized by the 
faculty meeting in Academic 

Rcsulis of the questionnaire 
suggest the kind of information 
which could be obtained from a 
course evaluation form. Students 
who answered the questionnaire 
seem to be happy with their 
courses, only 1% finding them 
"uninteresting". Most 

respondents feel that their classes 
are about the rigjit size. 
Interestingly enough, although 
undergraduates always talk a 
good deal about ''academic 
pressure", 79% of the students 
replying to the experimental 
questionnaire found the work load 
to be realistic, only 11% found it 
loo heavy, and 3% found it too 
light. Discussion in (he classroom 
was considered "lively and useful" 
by less than half the students and 
29% said it did not matter if dis- 
cussions were infrequent. Eight 
percent responded that class dis- 
cussions were "rambling and dull, 
useless, or unnecessary". Sixty- 
nine percent of the students said 
that they did not take courses 
because they thought they might 
help qualify them for a job or for 
further schooling. In general, 
students fell that they were en- 
couraged to think for themselves. 
Only 2% felt that their courses 
were not rigorous or challenging 
enough. As might well, be ex- 
pected, those majoring in a field i, 
or taking advanced courses in it 
found the course material more 
interesting than those who were 
taking a first course in the field. 
Cross-tabulation of answers to 
the questionnaire shows that 
students who have a definite com- 
mitment arc more satisfied with a 
course than those who arc taking 
it merely to meet a requirement. 
In general, as students develop 
more interests they find their 
course work more absorbing. 
However, this is not a very 
"strong" reaction. Out of 919 
students who were not majoring, 
and were not planning to major in 
the department in which the 
course was offered. 34% called the 
course "extremely interesting" (as 
opposed to 45%. of the 938 majors 
or prospective majors); non- 
etheless, 52% called it 
"interesting" — that is, dis- 
satisfaction was low in both 
groups. It is apparent from the 
responses received that the new 
form could become a highly flexi- 
ble instrument for testing assump- 
tions about the quality of educa- 
tion at Wellesley, distribution of 
(he work load, student response in 
the classroom and the correlation 
between material in different 

26 years ago the wont they could uy was 
"Nice girl i don't smoke" or "It'll itunt your growth." 

Now we know: 

Women who smoke art dying of lung canoar and othar 

tmoking-related diseases at twica the rata of woman who don't.

By: Eleanor McLaughl in 
Chaplaincy Associate 

I am happy to have the oppor- 
tunity in this column to do two 
things; give some background 
which will prompt you to hear the 
preacher this Sunday in Chapel, 
and re-introduce myself and what 
I am about on the Wellcsley cam- 

First the preacher. Dr. Charles 
V. Willie, a professor of 
Sociology at the Harvard 
Graduate School of Education

Sexism prevails in Congress 

By Sandy Sugawara '75 

How has Congress adjusted to 
the women's liberation 
movement? Have our Represen- 
tatives and Senators made a real 
cftorl to remove sexism from 
federal agencies and policies? 
Have they acknowledged and 
tried to deal with the special 
problems confronting women? 

Not really. Efforts to dale have 
been modest and many areas have 
been completely ignored. Recent- 
ly economic discrimination 
against women and the problem 
of rape have received the most 

Over 35 House bills prohibiting 
discrimination on the basis or sex 
in the granting or credit arc pen- 
ding in committees. The most im- 
portant one was introduced last 
May by Congresswomen Lenore 
Sullivan (Democrat — Missouri). 

Over 35 House bills 
prohibiting discrimination on 
the basis of sex ... are pen- 
ding in committees. 

According to Sullivan the main 
purpose or the Equal Credit Op- 
portunity Act (H.R. 14856) is to 
force creditors to consider all 
applicants for credit on the basis 
or their "creditworthiness." This 
would require examination of fac- 
tors afTccting ability to repay such 
as income and past credit records 
and forbid discrimination on the 
basis or race, color, religion, 
national origin, age, sex, or 
.marital status. The act provides 
civil liabilities up to $10,000 in an, 
individual action, and in a class 
action, such that the court may 

The bill was rcforred to the 
Subcommittee on Consumer AI- 
l.iirs. Hearings were held on June 
20 and 21. Written opinions were 
later solicited from several 
government agencies. Although 
the responses were mixed, it is an- 
ticipated that action will be taken 
on the bill in this Congress 
becuuse Sullivan is the chairper- 
son or this Subcommittee. 

Congrcsswoman Margaret 
Heckler from Wellcsley was 

responsible for H.R. 8393, which 
amended the National Housing 
Act or 1974 to provide that no 
Federally related mortgage loan 
or Federal insurance shall be 
denied to any person on account 
or sex. 

Approximately ten House bills 
to establish a National Rape 
Center are pending in the House. 
Financial assistance would be 
provided lor research and 
demonstration programs into the 
causes, consequences, prevention, 
treatment, and control or rape. 
However it is not expected that 
action will be taken on any of 
these bills. 

According to a spokesperson 
for the Women's Lobby, the 
"most strongly worded rape- 
related piece of legislation is 
found not in the House, but in the 
Senate". It is Title VIII or 
Senator Edward Kennedy's 
Health Services Act or 1974. The 
national center that would he es- 
tablished for the prevention and 
control or rape would, among 
other things, "study the effec- 
tiveness or existing federal, state, 
and local laws dealing with rape: 
the relationship between the 
traditional legal and social al- 
titude toward sexual roles, the act 
or rape, and the formulation or 
laws dealing with rape; and the 
treatment or (be victims or rape 
by law enforcement agencies, 
hospitals, and other medical in- 
stitutions, prosecutors and the 
courts". This bill is also awaiting 
action in Committee. 

It is nol expected that many or 
the women-related bills will be 
acted on in (he near folure. What 
is the cause of this inaction? The 
Senate stall members questioned 
usually gave three reasons. One, 
this was the year or Watergate. 
Preoccupation with Watergate 
has diverted attention from other 
important problems, and those of 
women were not spared. Two, all 
the Senators and most of their top 
advisors arc men. They fail to 
view sexism as a real issue. Three, 
groups such as Women's Lobby, 
National Women's Caucus, and 
National Organization of Women 
are "nol as professional as they

ordaining women to the 
priesthood in the Episcopal 
Church is not a mere sectarian 
controversy, but an issue or sym- 
bolic importance within Western 
Christian society which carries 
emotional weight far beyond the 
borders of the believing Christian 
community. But for women and 
men in the Church it is a crucial 
matter which touches the very 
core or the Gospel — can the 
Church as a community accept 
and affirm the follness or pcr- 
sonhood for women? Can it con- 
Con the Church as a com- 
munity accept and a/firm the 
fullness of the personhood of 

demn sexism as well as racism as 
a sin destructive of the very 
humanity it claims the Incarna- 
tion made whole? The ordaining 
Bishops spoke or their action in 
those terms, moving what Charles 
Willie called "an act or tender lov- 
ing defiance" beyond the bounds 
or church politics to " act of 
solidarity with those in whatever 
stratum of society who in their 
search for freedom, for liberation, 
for dignity, arc moved by that 
same Spirit to struggle against 
sin, to proclaim that victory, to 
attempt to walk in newness or 
lire." For many women, this issue 
or priesthood is a "walk to the 
front or the bus" which is already 
moving lives and communities 
towards the justice and inclusion 

and follness of personhood which 
presumably the Gospel is all 

I write about this issue with 
some feeling because I do think 
Christianity has something to say 
about meaning and humanncss, 
and that the Church in the context 
one lives as a Christian and 
witnesses that meaning be true (o

An Issue of Substance 

By Debra Knopman "75 

(Editor's note: In the interest of 
investigative reporting, NEWS is

one. My work on this campus is issues at Wellesley. This is the 
suitably introduced by reference third in the series.) 

to this concern for the full pcr- 
sonhood_or women insofar as 
Wellesley College in its begin- 
nings grounded its fominism in a 
religious matrix. 

One day a week I will be here as 
a Chaplaincy Associate and Ad- 
visor to Episcopal students, a role 
rather different from that of 
former Assistant Profossor in the 
History Department here or 
Fellow or the Radcliffe Institute 
where I am presently engaged in 
research on women in medieval 
heresy and spirituality. I take on 
this new position out or a sense 
gained as a teacher that there is .1 
widespread thirst for values, 
siructures. meanings in a world 
where the old has collapsed and 
the new forms or social and inner 
cohesiveness have nol yet emerg- 
ed. In this situation o( spiritual 
uncertainty it seems to me im- 
perative to present as an alter- 
native the questions and 
possibilities r classical 
Christianity in a way acceptable 

The group or students si- 
lently huddled on the threadbare 
rug, surrounding a steaming pot 
or lea and a battered cookie tin. 
Ordinarily, this kind or gathering 
was reserved for the later part or 
an evening after studying, but 
tonight was different. The clock 
struck six. 

A thin, pale senior peeled 
herselT from the floor and rose to 
a squat. 

"Women," she began in a 
quivering tone, "many a lime in 
our days here have we complained 
that Wellesley was dead political- 
ly, that people here don't care 
about anything more political 
than Senate buses. Residence 
policies have come and gone like 
seeds to the wind with hardly 
more outrage than a polite letter 
to NEWS. Members of the 
Centennial Class especially have 
lived through the changing 
political climate, from the War 
years (0 the return of apathy so 
prevalent on college campuses of 
the 1970's. 

"But now, we have an issue that 
no one can denounce. So perva- 
sive is its unwielding tentacles or 
influence that it touches each and 
everyone or us...". Her voice 
lowered, "...right in the stomachy" 

Stomachs growled in anticipa- 
tion. The other women slowly put 
their mugs down and directed 
their lull attentions to the elo- 
quent speaker. By (heir restrained 
nods, the speaker knew the others 
understood the magnitude or what 
she was about to say. 
"We, women or Wellesley, could 
•always depend on one thing, and 
; .now, they've taken that away, too. ihc strikers will stay on the lea 
B> i.s.m naturciiisadenialoi' -

honor codes or central registra- 
tion. I'm talking about a cold, 
hard fact or life... ICE CREAM." 
She paused as the others tapped 
their spoons on their mugs in 

She went on. "Nineteen hun- 
dred and seventy-four will go 
down in Wellcsley history as the 
year good old-fashion ice cream 
disappeared from the menu. Oh 
sure, ice cream bricks are fine for 
little kids' birthday parties, but 
we're not kids. We're women." 
The women raised their fists. 

"Must Mother Wellesley 
assume we're too young to handle 
an ice cream scoopcr? After all, 
we play tennis, we row, we type^ 
papers, we have wrists strong 
enough to sweep through any con- 
sistency of Hcavcnlv Hash." . 

"Need I go on further. It's ob- 
vious a Wellcsley meal without 
real ice cream is' no meal at all. 
And I ask you this. Can 
Wellesley live on tea and cookies 

By this time the group had 
swelled to the perimeters or the 
room, out the door, and along the 
hall. Women or all persuasions — 
Southern, Midwestern, Northern 
Jersey, and the girl on Bells — 
rang out in harmony, "NO, We 
want real ice cream!!!" 

The next morning saw the 
mobilization or the Wellesley 
Students for Better Ice Cream 
and its more militant faction, 
Wellesley Strike for Ice Cream. A 
march to the President's lawn 
was scheduled for (he afternoon. 
T-shirts were silk screened in four 
colors (one for each class) with the 
Cause's symbol. Stone Tower 
lopped with vanilla ice cream. 

The ice cream issue is a forccfol 
commentary on Wellcsley 
women's respect for justice. Un- 
til demands are met and good ice 
cream is restored unconditionally. 

$4500 a year, we have many 
rights to happiness.'" The group 
snickered. "I'm nol talking about

Because or limited fonds, Ihe

must be selective. Many members 
are volunteers and not easily

members have told or trying to 
contact the legislative liaisons or 
these groups at their offices on a 
weekday afternoon, only to be 
told that the women arc picking 
up their children from school or 
dance lessons. 

It is not expected that many 
of the women-related bills 
will be acted on in the near 

"Unfortunately I think the inex- 
perience or these groups really 
shows," said a lobbies! from 
another organization. "I've been 
(old they are unfamiliar with the 
chairmen or important subcom- 
mittees, that they confose legisla- 
tion and Congressional sponsors 
and that, well, all in all, they 
aren't on top or things. It takes

scars. Bui unlil then their effec- 
tiveness will be minimal." 

Making Monetarism Palatable 

By Martin Bronfenbrcnner 

Calkins Visiting Professor of 

A monetarist believes that both 
demand-pull and cost-push infla- 
tion are caused primarily by per- 
mitting a country's money supply 
to grow faster over a fairly long 
period than the country's real 
physical foil-employment output. 
He also believes lhal the cure lor 
inflation must include the 
monetary authorities' lowering 
the monetary growth rale lo ihe 
physical output growth rate and 
holding it there. He agrees that 
Ihe process or reducing the 
monetary growth rate may be 
painful and involve political risks, 
what with a period of tight money, 
high interest rales, unemploy- 
ment, slow growth, and the in- 
ability or some groups to catch up 
with their inllation period losses. 
A monetarist does not usually 
believe in deflating the economy 
by holding the monetary growth 

rate well below the output growth 
rate, let alone holding it below 
zero. Neither does he believe in 
light money, high interest rales, 
depression, or unemployment as 
punishment for society's in- 
flationary sins/for the good or its 
soul, or for their own sakes

Newell holds all-college meeting; 
Bar as calls guidelines "unclear" 

By Lin Frackman '76 

On Thursday, September 12, 
Mrs. Newell mcl with students, 
faculty and administrators in an 
all-college meeting to discuss im- 
plications of the proposed 
regulations against sex dis- 
crimination in education (Title 
IX). The meeting was organized 
so that Wellesley would have the 
opportunity of presenting its views 
to the Department of Health, 
Education and Welfare (which 
sponsors the guidelines) and to the 
American Council on Education 
(of which Mrs. Newell is a 

Mrs. Newell presented four 
main questions for discussion: 

(1) Should there be federal ad- 
ministrative guidelines at all, 
or will the effect of federal in- 
tervention outweigh the 
benefits of progressive move- 
ment toward equal treatment? 

(2) What areas should be covered 
in the guidelines which are not 
included now? 

(3) As an institution with a 100 
year tradition of single sex 
education, what do we think 
about the aspect of diversity in 
education and is the exemption 
for single sex institutions as 
presently written in the 
guidelines adequate? 

(4) What will be the effect of the 
guidelines on Wellesley? 
Where do we need to make ef- 
forts internally to conform to 
the guidelines? 

Mr. Baras, Assistant Professor 
of Political Science, asked for in- 
formation regarding the federal 
regulations on racial discrimina- 
tion. Wilma Scott Heide. former 
President or NOW (National 
Organization for Women), 
responded that there were 
guidelines somewhat comparable 
to Title 9 in Title 6 of 1964. Mrs. 
Nychis, Head of Financial Aid, 
spoke in favor of the federal 
guidelines, saying that regulations 
are the way to get action. Schools 
complied with the 1964 guidelines 
because if they had not, they 
would have lost all of their federal 

Dr. M. Elisabeth Tidball. a 
physiologist at George 
Washington Medical School who 
is doing research this year at 
Wellesley on "Women PHDs": 
Where do they come from?", 
brought up the issue of 
scholarships that are only open to 
blacks. There should be 
equivalent scholarships open only 
to women, she said, as a compen- 
satory measure. 

Mr. Brofenbrcnncr, Visiting 
Professor of Economics, question- 
ed whether Title 6 has been "easy 
to live with", adding that Dean 
Lester of Princeton University 
reported that it had been dis- 
couraging. Mrs. Nychis responded 
that her experience had only been 
ul schools where they had already 
used recruitment and other 
guidelines to combat racial dis- 
crimination, but that at schools 
where there had been no prece- 
dent, it was more difficult. 

Mr. Baras said that if the 
guidelincs were accepted there 
would be automatically standards 
that are more rigid, and thai the 
focus of activity would be in the 
HEW bureaucracy, instead of in 
the courts, where individual trials 
of sex discrimination could be 
decided. Mr, Baras emphasized 
that there is more flexibility 
without guidelines, where 
precedents would be set by a scries 

of ad hoc judicial decisions. 

Ms. Putnam. Associate 
Professor of Philosophy, said that 
she supports the guidelines 
because if she were an ad- 
ministrator, she would have dif- 
ficulty interpreting the law. and 
the regulations clarify how the law 
applies to each individual institu- 
tion. She added that if, for exam- 
ple, she were the only woman in a 
particular department, and she 
depended on the department for a 
recommendation, it would be dif- 
ficult to bring charges against the 
department, if they would not hire 
a woman. Mr. Baras described the 
guidelines as being self- 
contradictory and unclear. As a 
result, there would be the disad- 
vantages of having no clear 
guidelines, and also having federal 
intervention at the same time. 

Ms. Burling, member of the 
Physical Education Department 
asked if the guidelines in any waj 
approached the issue of freedom 
of speech. Wilma Scott Heide 
responded that the State could 
already he considered to have in- 
tervened in education through the 
stale education department and 
that the right of freedom ofspeech 
applied (o individuals only. She 
added that stereotyping of women 
was already a denial of the first 


Mr. Baras brought up the issue 
of the changes that would need to 
be made at Wellesley iT the 
guidelines were adopted. Mrs. 
Newell responded that in terms of 
employment, the College had 
come to an as yet unannounced 
agreement with the maintenance 
workers union. 

Mrs, Putnam asked whether 
Wellesley would have to hire more 
male professors if we. in return, 
wanted Harvard to hire more 
women professors. She also asked 
Mrs. Newell whether she would 
still defend single sex institutions 
if she believed that these 
guidelines would be effective. 
Mrs. Newell answered that she 
hopes that Wellesley "will even- 
tually put itself out of business." 
However, she continued that as 
long as there is discrimination in 
society, Wellesley is needed. 

Mr. Max-NecT, Visiting 
Professor of Political Science, 
said that there will always be a 
need for single sex institutions, so 
citizens will have the right to 
choose. He added that the main 
issue is in coeducational in- 
stitutions, and the proportion of 
women members in their faculties.

Pre-law students are unanimous; 
Watergate had "attorney heroes" 

Madison. N.J. (LP.) — The Presi- 
dent of the American Bar 
Association has been saying 
recently that Watergate has not 
hurt the law profession itself, and 
apparently college students agree. 

Less than six years ago. accor- 
ding to Robert Smith, who ad- 
vises pre-law students at Drew 
University, "deans of major law 
schools were still coming here to 
recruit students. On one occasion. 
m> wife and I were flown out 
Wcsl b) a dean who offered Drew 
an annual S3.000 scholarship. No 
one look it." 

All this has now changed, with 
most law schools receiving many 
limes the applications they can 
accept, and the reasons, according 
to Professor Smith, are obvious 

"The public administration 
field was big following World 
War 1 1 . But then came a freeze on 
government jobs at the federal 
level. Internships were closed off. 
And, it was Washinglon. not local 
government, that had been ex- 
citing and where the money and 
the opportunity to advance had 
hecn. Later, of course, the Viet- 
nam war turned many students 
away from the idea of working in 

Other reasons behind the law 
boom, says Professor Smith, have 
to do with the ways the field has 
been opening up. "Law schools 
are no longer particular about the 
majors from which they draw 
students." he notes. "A recent 

publication from the American 
Bar Association suggest only that 
pre-law students take courses re- 
quiring logical thinking, wherever 
found in the curriculum. Also, law 
schools arc opening their doors as 
never before to women and to 
blacks and other minority 

"Some have broadened their 
offerings." he notes, "by in 
tcrweaving the J.D. or LL.D. with 
an M.A. in sociology, urban 
studies, international affairs, and 
even economics or history in a 
four year program. Most Drew 
students don't like to be con- 
fined,'* he points out. "They want 
to keep their options open. They 
like these changes. They also like 
the way law has always opened 
into so many other fields — 
government; private practice; cor- 
porate law. including inter- 
national business; environmental 
law, higher education, and ad- 
ministrative law with its openings 
in the Federal regulatory agen- 

Individualistic though last 
spring's crop of pre-law seniors at 
Drew may be, they were un- 
animous on two points that touch 
their chosen profession. First, the 
idea of law as a way to get a han- 
dle on U.S. society and its major 

"People yell and scream about 
social issues. But in law there's 
a system through which to gel 

things done. There's definite 
•wrong' and 'right', legally speak- 
ing, which can be on your side in 
bringing about changes in the face 
of most solidly entrenched in- 
terests and practices." 

The second point on which 
these pre-law applicants agreed is 
that Watergate has not disturbed 
the profession in their eyes, 
whatever the public consensus. 
"To draw that conclusion from a 
single scandal, however great, is 
foolish if only because it ignores 
the numbers in the profession. 
Why, in Washington, alone, every 
other person you meet is a lawyer. 
Sure there's widespread suspicion 
of people in law and politics. But 
Watergate has its attorney heroes 
also — Cox, Richardson, Doar, 
Jaworski, Ruckleshaus — along 
with its attorney villains." The 
reaction of one applicant, who 
hopes eventually to work for the 
U.S. Department of Justice: "The 
scandal has only made me more 
sensitive about wanting to get in 
there and do a better job."

"The work is an experience 
in itself. You learn lo deal with 
difficult problems such as how 
to break through lo a student 
who has serious problems, who 
needs your help, but who is 
afraid of you." This statement 
by John Terry, Director of 
the MIT-Wellcslcy Upward 
Bound Program, underlines the 
challenge of working with such 
a program and points out that 
the MIT-Welleslcy Upward 
Bound Program, completing its 
sixth year at Wellesley, is a 
growing experience all around. 

The Upward Bound 
Program, starling in Wellesley 
in 1969, is not for high school 
students who have exhibited a 
high degree of achievement on 
■their own. It is rather for 
students who are unmotivated, 
and who have low aspirations 
with respect to education. They 
are the low achievers but who 
also have high potential. 

The idea is to identify these 
students early and, over a 
period of time, develop the 
study skills necessary for 
successful years in college. 

To do this, students are 
referred in the summer of their 
sophomore year of high school. 
These referrals can come from 
such sources as the courts, 
parents and teachers. Admis- 
sion lo the program is volun- 
tary and it continues 
throughout the next years until 
the student graduates from 
high school and can enter 

The recruited students then 

begin the summer program and 
enter an "intensive and 
stimulated college at- 
mosphere" on the Wellesley 
campus in one of the dorms. In 
the program, the students have 
three one hour classes a day. 
from nine lo twelve" for five 
days a week. On weekends, the 
students go home. 

The emphasis in academics 
is on the basics — English, 1 
more specifically reading and' 
writing, and malh. Outside of 
these two basic courses, the 
student can lake one elective. 
In the past the students have 
taken such courses as 
Astronomy, social studies, and 
even computer math. 

In the afternoons, there are 
arts and crafts, sports~and even 
workshops on relevant topics. 
Last summer, Don Polk, 
Human Relations Consultant, 
taught a workshop entitled The 
Dynamics of Prejudice. Alan 
Schectcr of the Political 
Science Department taught a 
seminar on the Constitution 
and Paul Barstow of the 
Theatre Studies Department, 
taught Drama. 

An important feature of the 
program is its difference from 
traditional classroom concep- 
tions, The emphasis in all of 
the Upward Bound classes is 
on getting the student in touch 
with him or herself as to what 
he/she can do. Also, there are 
no grades. Each student 
receives a written evaluation 
from the teacher. The evalua- 
tion discusses the student's 
good points and bad points and 
tells the student how to go 

about improving his/her weak 
spots. Upward Bound is in 
effect, "a school without 

Perhaps working most close- 
ly with the students are the 
tutor/counselors. The role of 
the tutor/counselor is two-fold. 
He/she works with the teachers 
as a teaching assistant and 
helps with the academics in the 
morning classes, and after 
classes, he/she tracks down 
students to help them with not 
only academic problems, but 
also with adjustment and social 
problems. The 

tutor/counselors live on the 
same floors as do the students. 
This year, there were 19 
tutor/counselors for 70 
students. Six were Wellesley 
students. They were Brenda 
King '76; Gwcn Lewis '76; 
Mary Murray '76; Judy 
Phillips '75; and Liz Romero 

Both the administration and 
faculty of the Upward Bound 
Program, their wives and 
children, also live in the dorm. 
This gives the program the at- 
mosphere of being "one big 
tribe". Last summer there were 
eight teachers and four ad- 
ministrators in residence in- 
cluding John Terry, Director of 
the Program. Tish Callaman, 
Assistant Director and 
Marshall Milner, Director of

summer program does not

tive high schools but are

provided with supportive ser- 
vices by (he Upward Bound 
Program. These services come 
under the heading of tutorial 
and cultural activities and even 
Saturday trips lo Wellesley 
where the summer group can 
meet again on "neutral 
ground" and see each other 

The final step in the program 
takes place in the summer after 
graduation and before entrance 
into college. It is called the 
Bridge Program. Here there is 
an attempt to work with more 
difficult material and most 
likely, material considered to 
be irrelevant by the students. 
They learn how to write a 1 
research paper as well as such 
college survival skills as outlin- 
ing books, and taking notes. 

Out of 18 graduating seniors, 

all 18 started college this fall. 
Tish Callaman, says that this 
success is due to the consisten- 
cy of the staff from year to year 
and the vital involvement of the 
students of Wellesley and MIT. 

It is this participation that 
the administration would like 
lo sec continue. Students are 
badly need to tutor during the. 
school year. The tutoring 
sessions would be at ihe MIT 
offices and would take place 
from 3 lo 5 in the afternoon 
and from 7 lo 9:30 in the 
evenings. Tutors arc needed in 
all areas. 

Volunteering for tutoring 
with the Upward Bound 
Program is not just a one way 
street. It is a cross-cultural ex- 
perience and would teach the 
different social and cultural 
norms." It touches all aspects 

of urban problems and Ihe stu-l

prices. Their compensation is the installation of all-house student

September sees a large turnover 
in Heads of House this year. Six 
positions were open and have been 
filled, and the biggest innovation 
in the selection process was the 
degree of student participation. 

Prior to last year, the openings 
in positions were not advertised 
nationally. Last year the openings 
were listed in national academic 
trade journals as well as circulated 
throughout the campus and 
Boston area to encourage a diver- 
sity of applicants. Whereas prior 
years provoked only a scant 
response, last year 187 applicants 
showed interest. The resumes were 
sent lo the various residence halls 
and screened by a committee 
composed of Heads of House and 
interested students, after which 
they were sent back to the 
residence office for corroboration. 
The decisions were initially based 
on the applicants' compatibility 
with the Head of House job 
description, a document drawn up 

last year listing necessary 
qualifications, func.ons, and 
responsibilities in relation to the 
residence hall inhabitants, staff, 
and administration of the hall. In 
addition it lists the benefits as free 
room for twelve months and 
board for the academic year, as 
well as "Liberal medical and life 
insurance plans offered by the 
college' golf and college club 
privileges." The contract comes 
up for renewal yearly with a three- 
point evaluation system that in- 
cludes input from students, the 
Head of House regarding herself, 
and that of the Director of 
Residence. On the basis of the 
determinings of the screening 
committee and the residence of- 
fice, over 150 candidates were 

At that point last May posters 
advertising the need for interested 
students and Heads of House to 
help with interviewing candidates 
were posted. Forty-one were sign- 
ed up and met for interview (rain- 
ing sessions which included 

Dorms lost dining halls but gained student kitchens 

By Patricia Mell '75 

The dorm atmospheres of 
Claflin and Shafer may have suf- 
fered due to the closing of their 
respective dining halls, but certain 
compensations were made. This 
summer. Claflin and Shafer 
shared $90,000.00 in renovations. 
SIO.000.00 was shared by the 
remaining dorms. Joyce 
Waddlinglon. Director of 
Residence, stated that every 
summer two other dorms will get 
the preferential treatment. 

The largest renovations in both 
Clallin and Sharer were direct 
results of Ihe closing of their 
respective dining halls. New 
students kitchens are being install- 
ed in each dorm. Ms. 
Waddlinglon said that "the cosl 
of student kitchens on each floor 
was prohibitive and that the in- 

stillation of an all-house student 
kitchen with full appliances seem- 
ed to be the best course of action. 
In Claflin, a typing area with 
work counters and lighting, ac- 
cousticul lackboard. and extra 
electrical outlets were made in a 
small area of the former dining 
room. The remaining space of the 
dining room will be converted into 
a lounge and furnished for sitting 
and television viewing. A 
study/library will be set up with 
carrels, bookshelves, study chairs, 
new lighting, carpeting and a 
lack hoard. Last, but certainly — 
not least in Ihe eyes of all former 
Claflin residents, were the 

renovated bathrooms. New sinks 
were installed, shower stall floors 
were relilcd and the walls and 
partitions were painted. 

In Shafer. two study/common 
rooms were set up with carrels 
and bookshelves, carpeting and 
lackboard. The mail area was 
supplied with belter lighting and 
telephone enclosures were con- 
solidated to create a sitting area. 
The dining room will be furnished 
as a silling room suitable for TV 
viewing. On the main floor, new 

carpeting and lighting were in- 

Shafer bathrooms got such ex- 
tra leatures as additional shower 
heads in tubs, and new sinks. 

Renovations in the remaining 
dorms of the Quad. Mungcr. 
Severance and Tower Court were 
in the form of study room 
development and improvement. 

The aim of renovations in the 
new dorms is lo improve lighting. 

familiarizing everyone involved 
with the Heads of House job 
description, composing insightful 
open-ended questions, and run- 
ning through practice sessions, 

The interview groups were com- 
posed of 5 or 6 people, 4 or 5 of 
them students. The interviews 
were approximately 30 lo 45 
minutes in duration and ended 
with an evaluation ranking with 
personal comments by each inter- 
viewer. Superior-ranked can- 
didates were called in for a second 
i n I e r v i e w by Ms. Joyce 
Waddlinglon and a core consulta- 
tion (cam of s(uden(s and Heads 
of House who were in the area 
over Ihe summer 

After more decisions and 
rcvisons the chosen were matched 
lo residence halls not only by 
family structure in relation to 
available hall' housing, but also 
personal compatibility with the 
supposed established character of 
a particular residence hall. The 
process was long and tiring, 
dragging through August, and yet 
most probahl) worth it. 

Another new innovation in 
residence this year was ihat of a 
pre-September training seminar 
for Vil Juniors. Heads of House 
and House Presidents which ex- 
tended from Aug, 29 — Aug. 31. 
Ms. Waddlinglon referred lo the 
orientation to orientate sessions 
as the exchange "l "lols "I" infor- 
mation in a palatable waj ' Sixty- 
four persons were housed in 
Severance and met for lectures, 
discussions and meals. 

Still another innovation in this 
year's residence polio is the 

"Stone-Davis experiment" which 
is a student-staffed dorm. The 
Heads of House apartments are 
being inhabited by gucsts-in- 

In actuality the proposal to 
make Stone-Davis a sluderit- 
Staffed dorm was presented 2 
years ago, but the proposal was 
accepted by Ms. Waddlington, 
President Newell and okayed by 
ihe Board of Trustees only last 

Is such the wave of the future? 
Ms. Waddlington responded, "I 
don't have any pre-bias on one 
system being belter over 
another.' - She added that the 
success or lack of it will be review- 
ed by the proposed Residence 
Task Force, a body thai will 
dejermine and recommend ef: 
ficacious policy regarding such 
myriad problems as renovations, 
structural problems and hall 
faculty-associate programs. 

"Makungu", a group of 
seven artists from the Norfolk 
State Correctional Institution, 
will perform at Wellesley 
College Saturday. September 
21 at 7:30 pm. in the Jewett 
Arts Center Auditorium. Spon- 
sored by Harambee House, the 
cultural and social center for 
black students at Wellesley, the 
performance will feature vocal 
and instrumental music as well 
as poetry. The public is Invited 
free of charge.

Junior show subversives plan attack 

Subversives strike campus 

The government announced 
yesterday that a Red Plol has 
been unearthed al Wclleslej 
College. Under the code name 
"Out of the Closet and Into My 
Life", this conspiracy will fortify 
the Junior Show movement that 
leaves Welleslcy shaking (with 
laughter) each fall. 

The campus is already crawling 
with subversive elements who 
proudly display red and white but- 
tons saying, "You don't have to 
he a man to get tough." The real 
significance of this slogan cannot 
be ascertained until a complex 
code i- broken 

The F.B.I, lists Jean Hampton 

Class of '76, as the ringleader. 
Ms. Hampton spent the last week 
of August in Chatham, 
Massachusetts, conferring with 24 
other dangerous revolutionaries. 
This group, belter known as "The 
Cape Committee" is believed to 
be the mastermind behind the 

Statistics indicate that over 
eighty people including co-eds on 
exchange and M.I.T. students, 
will play major roles in the coup. 
At least another fifty are engaged 
behind (he scenes, in business and 
on propaganda. The headquarters 
have been pinpointed at one mile 
east of Natick. 

The Secretary of Defense fears 
the unconditional use of humor. 
Puns and jokes will be shot 
around to provoke mass hysteria 
and unmercifully attack such 
honorable institutions and 
traditions as Welleslcy College, 
the Recorder and hoop rolling. 
Thousands are expected to die 

Everyone should beware of peo- 
ple in disguise. Even the girls next 
door might be involved. 

The staging of this historical 
event will be September 27 and 28 
at 8 p.m. in Alumnae Hall, so gel 
ready. Don't let the Red Scare 
catch you with your pants down! 

When Ann Gabhart graduated 
from Welleslcy in 1961 with a 
degree in art history, her major 
had prepared her for a career. 

Studies in art history, sur- 
prisingly enough, do lead to an 
amazing number of job oppor- 
tunities in what passes as the real 

After Wcllcsley, Ms. Gabhart 
entered the Fine Arts Program al 
Harvard and received her masters 
in art history. She then went lo 
Italj to begin work on her Ph.D. 
thesis, where she became a pari of 
the rescue efforts during the flood, 
about which she says, "if il had lo 
happen, I was glad I was there to 
After Italy Ms. Gabhart 
became curator of the 
Renaissance and Baroque collec- 
tions at Baltimore's Walters Art 
Gallery, where she stayed from 
1967 lo 1972. She accepted 
Wellesley's offer of Museum 
Director at Jewell in 1972. 

According to Ms. Gabharl, 
upon receiving a Wellesley degree 
with a major in arl history, there 
are (wo general courses of action 
available to students interested in 
working in the field. She can go 
on for her masters and Ph.D. in 
arl history and eventually return 
to academia as a professor, or 
take the same graduate program 
with the intent of entering the 
museum profession. 

Ms. Gabhart feels that for 
either of these options Wellesley's 
department has one of the finest 
reputations in the country, and 
that its ability lo place students in 
the best graduate level programs 
is concrete proof of thai. 

I Was a Teenage Advertising Woman 

Bv Emil\ Yoffc '77 

I was a teenage adwoman. Or 
more properly I spent the past 
three months working as an intern 
in the promotion Dcparlment of 
WNAC-TV. Boston's CBS af- 
r/Ujfllc (channel 7.) 
II learned i Int. wroic cops fof

for working al 7.) 

My lirsi day at work was un- 
usual, but not unheard of. One of 
my bosses look me out to lunch, 
got me drunk, then escorted me lo 
"The Devil in Miss Jones." 

Lunch was always a fairly li- 
quid enterprise, but my basic 
sobriety, and desire t>> see Julie 
Andrews movies, nipped I he 
noon-lime matinees in the bud. 

In getting down to work, my 
Firs) assignment involved ob- 
taining the biographies of ihe on- 
air personalities, and writing them 
up for press releases. 

For some of the newsmen ihis 
was a Prouslian venture, as I was

miracle of velcro clolhes

miracle ol oui anchorman. Ted

In June the idea ol squeezing an 
explanation of ihe show express- 
ing ihe star's personality, and giv- 
ing basic information like dales 
and time, into 30 seconds was an 
awesome task "i condensation. 
B> August, I was generally lefl 
wondering how u, fill ihe last 15 
seconds of the ads I was writing. 
My maiden effort was a spot 
with Ted, We spcnl .ill day drop- 
ping him oil ai various historic 
Boston sights, and telling him to 

After Ted was finished walking, 

I was assigned lo write the copy. 
The results: 

"When you're a part of the 
Boston 7 newsroom — you're 
really pari of the city you're 
reporting. And that means you're 
part of one of the last major cities 
that's really livable.- A city alive j 
with diversity and eneHtt'J From • 
the old world flavor of Beacon 
Hill, to the European feeling of an 
outdoor cafe ... Boston a cily in

moving with it." 

That is an example of the takc-

and - have - the-talcnl-say - it, the 
variation on this is wrile-lhe copy-'

An example of the former oc- 
cured when we promoted "Help

"Help Thy Neighbor" is an 
atrocity that will surely be one of 
Ihe highest rated shows in this 

Six "neighbors" with insoluable, 
problems appear on each 
program. Their "neighbors" out 
in TV land call in offering aid and 

The audition tape for the show 
featured a paraplegic newspaper 
delivery man who's electric 
wheelchair had been stolen. 

My task was to write copy that 
would explain ihe show, introduce 
the charming host, ask for people 
with problems, and lend an air of 
dignity to the proceedings. All one 
can do in circumstances like those 
i lint off your brain and write. 
The write-the-copy-with - 
talent-doing-something'- is a more 
pal, liable enterprise. WNAC is 
irvinc singlehandedly to revive the 
popularity ol boxing by broad- 
casting live m-studio fights-. 

M > job on this was to make one 
ol the boxers into a local 
Muhammed Ali. 

The fighter was shot in a dark 
hosing ring working out in slow 

motion with this voice over. 

"I'm Marvelous Marv Haglcr '

bpxer to ever hit the airwaves. On

As for meeting celebrities, mosl 
of them were the (ocal homegrown 
variety. The station did do a roast 
for Bobby Riggs at one point. My 
obligations were lo write the copy 
for his promo, and give him a big 
kiss. The man may well be taking 
as many vitamins as he proclaims, 
but till I met him. I wasn't aware 
of the effect Vitamin C has on 
pupil dilation. 

I suppose Ihe star of the 
summer was Lawrence Welk. He 
was patient, unpretentious, and 
sweet, if jusl a shade senile. (He- 
was on a blitz cross country tour, 
so maybe it was exhaustion.) 

A somewhat disturbing element 
of the job is how natural il 

The adjectives, hyperbole, and 
sometimes deceit became second 

Sometime what's disturbing is 
more subtle. Within the space of a 
week. I had to write copy for 
"Our City's History", "Our 
City's Histor> lakes a look at the 
explosive issues of the past month; 
included arc the resignation of a 
presideni. and a controversial 
baptism," a press release for a 
special on busing;" ... integration

sometimes successful process ... " 
and copy for a, spot for Mass 
Reaction (a viewer-expert discus- 
sion show.); " ... in these volatile 
and unpredictable times ... what's 
discussed is dictated by what's 
happening around us, and these 
days that's anything ... " 

Is writing aboul all trjpse "ex-, 
plosive" occurrences a reflection of 
the truth, or was I creating a 
truth, a climate of unstability? 

Of course thal's not the only 
kind of question 1 had to deal 
with. Promotion involves public 
realtions. One always had to be 
ready to answer phone calls of 
viewers with pressing concerns 
such as. "Is Sammy Davis Jr. 
really Sally Slrulhers father ... ?"

spirits. I will be available to talk 
about these or any other matters 
Thursday a.m. 9-11 in Schneider

Al 5 p.m. on Thursdays we will

Ihe Rev. Susan Andrews in a

I will bring the fruits of my pre- 
sent research I happily share 
your surprise at finding a college 
professor turned into a minion of 
the Chaplaincy and look forward 
to discovering how these two 
vocations complement each other 
in an academic milieu. 

Ms. Gabhart indicated that 
there are three career divisions in 
museum work; curator, conser- 
vator, and educator. She chose lo 
become a curator because it 
offered her the greatest 
"scholarly" opportunities with the 
added excitement of actually 
working with the art objects and 
with people. 

As a curator, she must know 
about the pieces under her super- 
vision and often does a great deal 
of research, especially on newly 
acquired objects. 

The curator is responsible for 
selecting works for exhibitions 
and for their installation. This 
also involves handling precious 
and breakable objects. Though 
she's, "never dropped anything", 
apparently most people in her line 
of work arc not so lucky. The 
"foot in your first painting" is an 
acknowledged occupational 
hazard. As this sad story il- 

"When I was at Walters Art 
Gallery we had an intern from the 
Ford Foundation as an apprentice 
curator. It was her first day and I 
took her up to the vault where our 
most valuable objects were kept— 
the gold, silver, ancient cameos 
and delicate enamuls. We began 
going through drawer after drawer 
of these works when I saw a 
cameo and look it out to show 
her. 1 started to say something 
about it as I handed it lo her. She 
immediately dropped it — and 
there it was, jusl scattered all over 
the floor. 

"It turns out to have been a 
Renaissance forgery of an ancient 
cameo, so il was not the terrible 
loss that the girl supposed in the 
instanl before I told her. She wenl 
on lo become one of our finest in- 

Trying lo repair the cameo 
would have been the job of the 
museum conservator, another 
field that the art history major 
prepares a student to enter. While 
it requires "great patience, the 
proper temperament, and manual 
ability" job offers are usually con- 
stant and high paying. 

A conservator generally takes a 
three year graduate program in 
art history and art conservation. 
She emerges with the ability and 
knowledge to repair most kinds of 

There are programs of Ihis 
nature al many Universities: 
foremost are those at Oberlin, 
New York University, and in 
Rome and London. The MFA has 
a course that several Wellesley 
students have taken (for credit ) as 
a starter course in this field. 

The curator works very closely 
with the conservator, often 
deciding together when and what 
will be done. Ms. Gabhart told the 
story of a puzzling problem at the 
Wallers that occurred when their 
bronze statuettes began to develop 
strange spots. 

Since il was unlike any "bronze 
disease" thai anyone had seen 
before, and because it had already 
ealen through Ihe palina or var- 
nish on ihe pieces, a chemical ex- 
pert was consulted to determine 
ihe exact nature of the spots. 

As il happens, they were caused 
h\ sulphuric acid, or automobile 
pollution. The chemist also 
offered what she thought to be a 
practical solution. It would be 
very eas> . she suggested, to totally

monetary authorities caving in, 
printing more money and refuel- 
ing the inflation in order to 
forestall a wave of bank closings. 
How to prevent all this, within 
a monclarist framework? By 
repealing existing regulations 
which prevent commercial and 
savings banks from paying 
realistic and competitive interest 
rales on demand and lime 
deposits! This move would erase 
Ihe little man's resentment against 
the high nominal (but not real) in- 
terest rales open to ihe big fellow 
but not lb him. It would keep 
money in the banks, and induce 
saving at the expense of consump- 
tion. It would eliminate the grow- 
ing fear of credit crunches and 
money panics. Whal more do we 

Candor compels an admission, 
in closing, that some important 
problems would remain unsolved. 
I mention only two: (I) The 
savings and loan institutions 
would be left in serious trouble if 
their bunking competitors paid 
higher interest rates which they 
themselves (because they hold so 
many long-term mortgages from 
prc-inflation days) could not 
meet; (2) In trying lo earn higher 
interest rales for their depositors 
and still make profits, banks 
would make more risky loans and 
occasionally fail, so Ihat the 
FDIC would have some work lo 
do. Bui even admitting these and 
other technical bugs and glitches 
and gremlins, the monetarist 
route seems lo me easier and 
better than cither letting inflation 
lake ils course or a long term set 
of strait-jacket controls.

Aquatic sports 
Begins its season 

By Mar> Young '76 

The fortunes of aquatic sports 
at Wellesley took an upswing this 
week as talented freshmen joined 
returning veterans in newly- 
organized practice sessions. 

Coach Sue Tendy entertained 
about 20 swimmers and divers 
Monday to finalize practice plans 
and set up the Sept. 30 dorm 
swimming meet. 

"It looks like we have a lot of 
good freshmen this year," she 
said. "We went out to practice 
and everybody was doing flip 
turns, which is unusual for the 
first day." 

Many have been practicing 
regularly, Ms. Tendy added. Now 
practices for swimmers and divers 
are Tuesdays and Fridays from 3 
to 4. Water polo practices are held 
Monday, Wednesday and Thurs- 
day of each week, also from 3 to 

The Wellesley water polo team 
went undefeated last year, spor- 
ting victories over such perennial 
swimming powers as Radcliffc 
and UMass. The team went into 
competition last year knowing 
very little about the game, but 
with the help of talented, Kim 
Cole '77 and plenty of energy, 

they excelled. Tom Dimieri of the 
Sociology Department may be 
helping with the team this year, 
Ms. Tendy said. 

The swimming team did not 
post an impressive record last 
year, however. In six regular 
meets they grabbed only one vic- 
tory, although they fared much 
better in championship and in- 
vitational meets, where their 
depth behind the winners earned 
valuable points. 

The energy crisis nearly sent the 
Wellesley swimmers off the deep 
end last year, causing cancellation 
of at least six meets. Season 2 and 
3 in 1974-75 will hopefully sec un- 
hindered competition. 

The dorm swim meet will be 
held next Monday at 8:15 at the 
pool. Signup sheets have been 
placed at bell desks by team 
swimmers, who will run (he event. 
All dorm residents, including 
coeds, are invited to compete. 

Events this year will include 25- 
yd. butterfly, breaslroke, 
backstroke and freestyle, plus a 
50-yd. freestyle and 100-yd. 
freestyle relay. Also planned are a 
medley relay, diving and novelty 
ruces consisting of a three-legged 
or fully-clothed 25-yd. splash 
down the pool.

The Sports Association voted 
to retain the intercollegiate ski 
team Tuesday night after hearing 
a call for a "strong rationale" in 
Wellcsley's overall sports 
program from the chairman of the 
Physical Education department. 

Ms. Linda Vaughan told the 
sport heads and faculty advisors 
thai the P.E. department came 
back early this year to "try to 
begin to deal with the funding 
issues" associated Wellesley 
sports. The department feels very 
strongly that intercollegiate 
athletics are an "extension of the 
instructional program," Ms. 
Vaughan said, and offers oppor- 
tunities for the skilled student to 

Ms. Vaughan suggested a long- 
term study to deal with inter- 
collegiate sports as a whole and 
decide if funds should be 
redistributed or remain spread out 
for greater involvement. 

The students and faculty should 
seek facts on which to base such a 
decision, Ms. Vaughan said, and 
should not go about the problem 
in a piece-meal way. 

Three members of the ski team 
were at the meeting, including the 
sport head, Lissa Hale '75. and 
Heidi Horner '77. The ski team 
has the highest budget of any S.A. 
sport with a S585 allotment for 
about seven people to go to five 
meets, although it was not known 
what (he interest level would be 
this year.

The intercollegiate 
volleyball team will begin prac- 
ticing this week, encouraged by 
i he interest expressed by 
freshwomen at the Schneider

tinued commitment of last

After several lean years for 
volleyrjall, the team even pic- 
tures itself beginning to 
challenge field hockey's pop- 

They expect to form two 
teams for a season that will last 
into November. Everyone is

No major innovations came out

Coed sports may 
Beat Wellesley 

By Mary Young '76 

Wellesley may be discriminated 
against on an interschool level 
once coeducational schools begin 
to augment their women's sports 
programs, according to Ms. Linda 
Vaughan, chairman of the 
Physical Education department. 

The Educational Amendments 
Act of 1972 says that women must 
be provided equal opportunity to 
engage in organized athletics, Ms. 
Vaughan said. The implication is 
that extension of opportunities to 
women by previously male- 

dominated schools may put them 
ahead of Wellesley facility-wise 
and fund-wise. 

Ms. Vaughan presented the 
idea at a Tuesday meeting of the 
Sports Association while speaking 
on Title IX of the EAA. While 
there is no contrast or discrepancy 
in opportunities for the sexes at 
Wellesley, Ms. Vaughan noted 
that the college also may not sup- 
port any organization that es- 
pouses discrimination based on 
sex. Wellesley belongs to skiing 
and squash associations for 

women. ,„ „ _,
